Hu'u Bar & Grill - Seminyak, Bali

On my recent Bali trip, I was actually supposed to land at 10PM at night, which meant that we would miss out on dinner.  The flight ended up being cancelled, so I changed to an earlier one which meant we were able to get into Bali at around 4:30pm. Score!

After checking into the Yubi villas, it was off to find some food nearby. Seminyak is a treasure trove of nice restaurants and boutiques, especially on Jalan Petitenget, where we stumbled upon Hu'u (the famous Ku de Ta and Potato Head are also located on this strip) I would definitely recommend staying in Seminyak instead of Kuta, as it is a nicer and quieter area.

Beautiful outdoor dining area at Hu'u with plenty of comfy looking lounges

Inhale... Imbibe... Indulge

Cocktail time - as with most of the bars in Bali, the cocktail list is impressive

'The best damn cocktail' - vodka, raspberry liquer & puree with muddled cherries and topped lemon lime & Coconut Cooler mocktail

A little appetizer to start off the night - grilled aubergine

We weren't totally ravenous, so just ordered a few small tapas like dishes to share

hot and sour scallop and prawn risotto - with a kaffir lime and shellfish reduction

The sweet and sour flavours really packed a punch in this, I really enjoyed the fresh, juicy prawns with the asian flavours against the risotto

Crisp pork belly - on mango salad with coriander puree

Cajun corn fritters - grilled corn and sweet pepper with a chilli thyme remoulade

Dessert cocktail time - The Forbidden Milkshake

Dessert platter - my favourite was definitely the pandan and palm sugar pancake thing, so yummy!

Fantastic atmosphere, especially for a few cocktails. I love Bali, will definitely be back for another visit as soon as possible. 

The villa I stayed in Seminyak was fantastic too, pics below:

They upgraded our villa and were so welcoming and friendly, plus 24 hour room service and basically anytime you need, they'll drive you to anywhere in Seminyak (and then catch a taxi back at your leisure)
